[Close Down]

Over the weekend, I was attending a Photography workshop at Bankers Club, and of course there are breaks in between. Then hit down to dinner and walk pass thru Sungai Wang to head to Lot 10 Hutong, I came across this Polo Bun Shop by the name Polo Zai Bakery Cafe. I love polo bun alot and looking at the texture of the bread surely looks tempting and decided to buy 1 after dinner to test the quality.

Guess what? After buy 1 on the first night, we ended up ta pau and buy for the next 2 days of the workshop, including last night. 😀

polozai (1)

Some fact of Polo bun or 菠萝包 is the Hong Kong style of bun and very popular in Hong Kong. The word 菠萝 is also a Hong Kong word meaning ‘pineapple’ where the skin of the bun looks like a pineapple.

Now at Polozai Bakery Cafe, they have mastered and specialized in baking these Polo bun with 16 choices of creative and delicious flavors to choose from. I believe they are freshly baked daily to get the freshness and quality of it. You will be tempted by the smell of it although its not so strong as compare to Roti Boy.

polozai (2)

I have tried  a few flavours over the past few days. One of the original which is Polo Butter is always the classic. With the cripsy crumbs on the top and butter spread at the base/ bottom @ RM 2.80.

polozai (3)

Next I try their Custard Polo Bun, crust is the same as the filling is custard. Find that the filling of custard is not well spread out as I bite half of the bun still there is no sign of the custard and only realize is only 1/4 of the bun, which is one of the corner.

polozai (4)

To be adventourous, we bought alot a few flavours such as Durians. Durian turns out to be pretty good and generous with the ingredient, with the durian flesh sticking out like that, can see that they are using fresh durian to insert as the filling.

Another 2 we tapau is Cheeze and Polo Ham Sausage.

The range of their bun are from RM2.80 – RM 5 depends on which selection you are aftering. For first timer, I would definately recommend their classic signature which is the Polo Bun, follow by Custard or durian.

Overall, the crust of the top is not bad, not too sweet and bun is pretty soft. Can say that one of the best Polo Bun that I came across, in overall taste and if they are serve pippin hot or warm, it would surely be one of the top seller in Sungwai Wang.

Continuing my food hunt in Jakarta that my friend bring me along to a few nice places. One of it is this Paulaner Bräuhaus that I have heard my Indonesia friends talk about it alot last round and here am I, hunting for this place. It is located next to Grand Indonesia, right below Hotel Indonesia Kempinski.

beer houz (1)

Night landscape of the hotel is very nice with multi colored Led lighting around that  building that constantly changing colors. This are the main entrance to the restaurant.

beer houz (2)

For those of you who loves German food, this outlet certainly will impress you as it had emerge as Jakarta’s most popular German restaurant and micro-brewery for both visitors and locals.

beer houz (3)

As I step into the outlet, I am blown away as it looks like a classic mini beer factory and my friend told me that, it used to be a beer brewery that serve fresh beer to customers and due to some issue, it is no longer producing here.

beer houz (4)

Interior here are just so nice, that makes it a perfect place for friends and family to hang out.

beer houz (5)

This is what I mean that it used to be mini brewery with all the necessary tools are being install.

Asparagus Soup @ RP65,000 is some how a bit tasteless.

beer houz (12)

Sausage Pork @ RP 90,000

beer houz (13)

Sausage pork is grill to perfection by maintaining its juiciness and its soft. Potato salad with pork ham if I am not mistaken that make it not too creamy and just to my liking.

beer houz (14)

In Indonesia, every one just love their food to be spicy and Heinz come out with Sambal Pedas.

beer houz (15)

Order the classic Paulaner and Mango flavour Paulaner beer. Girls would love the mango flavor beer as it have sweet after taste.

beer houz (17)

most of the staff here wore classic German clothing as I have seen in many of German restaurant.

beer houz (18)

This is another entrance to the restaurant or I would say the back way from the mall or hotel.

Overall, this place is certainly a great place to hang out and it is constantly full or pack with crowd over the weekend.

Tropicana is one of my favourite mall for movies based on convinience in parking, much less people and cheaper by 10%. One of the reason its nearer to my house and office. Well, there are actually some eatery in Tropicana that serve pretty decent food that I small little shop that I have dine pretty often is Tuan Yuen that serve Taiwanese food at Lower Ground, same area as Tea Chansii or Carrefour Level.

[UPdate – No Longer in Operation]

Bare in mind that Taiwanese food are mild in taste, not as heavy taste as our local food.

Taiwan (1)

This little shop is a small family business that operate by both the ‘tau keh so’ and her son along with 2 worker. The owner herself is from Taiwan that had migrated to Malaysia and starting up this business to promote Taiwanese food. Since I came back from Taiwan, this is something that is quite near to Taiwan food taste and sadly to say she is tweaking the taste to suits our local taste bud.

Taiwan (2)

Price is pretty decent that starts from RM7.50 and quite a huge range of Taiwanese food that you can choose from.

Taiwan (3)

One of my favourite is the dumpling that you must order, Me and ken love it alot as we find its pretty similiar to Taiwan. Something simple to start off with.

Taiwan (4)

Taiwanese sausage is pretty simple and direct whereby you can eat it in most of the night market . . .

Taiwan (5)

Taiwanese Style Extra spicy Beef Rice @ RM 11.90

Taiwan (6)

One of their signature is this Big Meal Beef Noodle, Extra Spicy @ RM 11.90 that I often order. Colour of the soup gives you the impresion that its not spicy and after a few sips of the soup, it will make your tongue numb as, spiciness are more towards Szechuan style. Loving it~ noodle are not cook consistant as it is suppose to be smooth and thin while eating and it have to depends on who cook it. If cook by both the owner or the son it taste good, and if its the worker, it would be usually overcook.

Beef slices are soft and goes well with noodle. They do prepare tissue for you on the table for you to wipe your sweat off. :D, Those who could not take spicy dish, it is not adviseable to order this, or maybe you can request the owner to toned it down for you.

Another thing that its a must order in here is their Winter Melon Tea. One of the best by far that I often came here to make a take away. I personally feel that it beats any of the bubble milk tea shop out there.

One of my personal fav Taiwanese shop.

Over the weekend, my best friend Ian was quite free then gave me a call ‘Woi, want to go have lunch? Go Batu Caves there makan’? I was like harr.. serious? Batu Caves? then he was like very good eh, will never introduce you wrong food, then I call Ken along too. Driving from my side to another side to hunt for this restaurant. Pan Heong Restaurant is one of a well know restaurant that attracts many from near and far. He also mention that why I should come here to makan is that they use Charcoal to cook! anything cook with charcoal always create another flavor out of it.

Pan Heong (1)

Pan Heong Restaurant is very well known to many locals especially their neighborhood area. With the quality of food and of course their very reasonable price had attracted people from all over then. It was Sunday morning and I was blow away on the numbers of customers queueing up for a table.

Pan Heong (2)

My other group of friends came earlier, therefore we got a spot pretty fast.

Pan Heong (3)

As when I dine in a new place, I always love to observe other tables on what they are ordering or what are the usual repeat order that they(diners) eat.

Pan Heong (4)

As my friend told me, they started off in under a tree and their business had grew so fast then they move to shop lot themselves.

Pan Heong (5)

Started off with a simple Vegetable @ RM 11

Pan Heong (6)

We did not order white rice therefore we go for their Fried Rice as I see many people order. It is a very simple dish that they fried it till very aromatic and ‘wok hei’ as I always love my fried rice to have chinese sausage. @ RM 15

Pan Heong (7)

This is one of their signature HOr Fun and supposedly to order their ‘Sang Har Mee’ but as majority would prefer this for this round. @ RM 15. I love the gravy texture, smooth with egg add up onto while it is serving very hot to let it cook itself while its hot. Smooth gravy and pair very well with the koey teow.

Pan Heong (8)

Next one of my favourite is their Kao Yoke Mee Hoon @ RM 17. Mee hoon was not fried too dry, moist as it originally suppose to be and eat along with the soft fatty Kao Yuk is just perfect. – Recommended!

Pan Heong (9)

Nam Yu (fermented bean curd) Pork is one of the dish not many places can cook well. I must say this place have done it well, that I nearly whack the whole plate by myself instead of sharing it with another 7 more pax. It is well marinated and deep fried to the edge is crispy, and the taste of fermented bean curd is there that do not over power the taste or too strong. – REcommended! @ RM 18.50

Pan Heong (10)

One of the dish that many table order is their Porridge. Then we opt for Fish Porridge @ RM 18. Silky smooth texture of porridge just like the one I had it in Hong Kong, sign’s of being boil long enough to come into this texture. Notice that the fish meat cook instantly under the super boiling hot porridge. Its a bit mild in taste yet just taste good~ Heee,, for sick people, it would be a good meal for you guys.

Overall, the food is not bad and the portion charge with the prices I would say its on the cheaper side as total bill came to RM 105 and dine with total 8 pax.

As below are all the super stars for the night, as for the first time we come across superb alcohol ice cream. So we ordered a few and this is the first one that came.

Gecko (7)

Single Malt 12 years old Macallan – Ice cream is quite solid soft that pairs the taste of Macallan very well, that is not too strong, yet get to taste the alcohol is there and did not overpower the taste of vanilla. – RM 12

Gecko (8)

The super star of the night is this Guinness Flavor! It is exactly like drinking Guinness! I think would be very best to order a pint of Guinness and put a few scoops of this to make it like alcohol float! Recommended! RM10

Gecko (9)

Italian Kahlua, I would say more suits to girls as Kahlua already known by itself its a coffee liquor that is not too strong in flavour and best perfect to pair with milk and it is just right to go along. RM 10

Another Flavor is Johnnie Walker – Turns out to be not bad but have tasted the best above so my taste bud had overpower this flavor. RM 10

Gecko (10)

Bailey’s Mud Pie @ RM 10

Gecko (11)

I often had Mud Pie but never come across this Bailey’s Mud Pie that a soft warm chocolate pie is place on a mini sea alcohol of Baileys. The taste is warm, filled with alcohol and a perfect combination with ice-cream that makes it very unique in taste! – Recommended

Gecko (12)

Peanut Butter Snow Pie @ RM 10

If you are looking for something different for your desert, Gecko is one of the place to hunt for something you rarely try and its good! as for my own personal favourites of Ice – Cream I would choose 2 flavours is a must try is Guinness and Macallen!
